I went to Susan's site and could not figure out how to look at the proofs. Does anyone know how?

My understanding was that you had to arrange in advance for a photographer to take shots. I emailed 2 in advance and they agreed to photograph my horse. Neither has posted proofs online yet, I don't expect them until after the entire horse show is done.

That seems to be the DAD procedure, which is different than most shows I am used that. I have to say though, I don't dislike having a choice and I think making the arrangements ahead of time gave me some relief in knowing photos would actually be taken. So far, I kind of like this process.

My friend's husband was there shooting from Tuesday thru Thursday and I just checked his site where it appears he has started uploading photos... :yes:

I also looked at the DAD master photographer list (http://dressageatdevon.org/cms/2011pdf/2011DADPhotographersList.pdf) and checked some of the links, including Hoof Prints (who is the "official" awards photographer) but I didn't see anything uploaded yet...

Looks to me like he also was shooting people who asked in advance (mainly). Look at Class 128, there are 2 pages of photos and they're all of the same horse. And then he shot the Iberian horse class, randomly, out of all the breed classes. That had to have been because a client asked?!

I find thise whole photography-free-for-all really strange, but it seems to be the DAD way of handling things. I also noticed a fair number of photographers that were NOT listed as official but were clearly out there wuith equipment taking photos. So I'll be the first to admit that perhaps I don't understand the system. But I was told "here's a list of approved photographers, if you want photos, you have to ask them in advance." It's a very different system than what I am used to!

I can't wait to see photos :)

Hoof Print Images said they were taking pictures of the ribbon ceremonies but I haven't seen any links to the show on their site yet.

Oh boy, I am going to drop a WAD on photos! Because I am going to buy from the photographers I ASKED to shoot for me, but your friend's husband got absolutely GORGEOUS photos of my horse, so of course I am going to buy a bunch from him too.

Wowwie zowwie I really *like* this strategy for photography at shows! Choice is nice! It's just making me buy MORE, it's not really ending up in competition. I'm going to end up buying the best of what everyone shot of my horse!

He takes beautiful photos. I was thrilled at the ones he got of my horse. Seriously, I am going to end up buying dozens of photos by the time I am done buying from everyone! I think this disproves the concept that competition is a bad thing ;)

I am so jealous, I want to see some pictures of my filly! Seems to me they have had enough time to get something up on the website by now.

I have now bought from 4 different photographers, spent more on photos than I think I did on ENTRIES ;) and I am very, very happy. Now I just have to wait until they arrive! How exciting. I am thrilled, overall, with the quality and choice of photos at DAD. I really wish other shows would consider either using this model or inviting some of these same photographers to come to their shows. Quite a few of my favorite photos came from photographers I don't normally see at the shows I attend (mostly H/J).

OK, so I am officially frustrated. I managed to spend 4 days there and not get the message that you had to sign up to get photographed, and I can't find any of the awards other than for the breed show on any of the sites. Rats! This was my horse's first Devon outing and I really wanted one photo....Who knew it was so hard? I am spoiled I guess by getting photo'ed automatically at all our shows.
